ENGL 1115.01 The University Writing Lab

The University Writing Lab offers individualized tutorial instruction to support first-year and sophomore level students as they become acquainted with academic writing across the curriculum. The lab approach to education promotes learning by doing, so students in this course should bring works-in-progress to every session with their peer tutor.

In the lab, students will learn to analyze and respond appropriately to the rhetorical situation, reflect on and adjust their writing process, understand how to integrate source information in their writing, and use academic conventions for grammar and mechanics. Lab students meet with a writing tutor for a minimum of 6 hours throughout the semester. Grading for this class is Credit/No Credit. 

For specific information about the course, follow this link: ENGL 1115 Syllabus, Fall 2020. Contact Dr. Gross, Associate Director of the ARC, for more information about the ENGL 1115 Writing Lab.
